Fadeawayradiate Top 5 lists 2019

The end to a decade: time flies! All in all, I think this decade definitely saw more interesting releases in indie-music than the preceding one. We had a lot of recycling of past musical styles that gradually, smoothly have rolled into a current anthology of hybrid sounds. We started off with a shoegaze revival; then dreampop became a very broad concept which incorporated all kinds of possible retro styles; we saw the return of 80’s sophistipop & daytime disco and a big resurgence in all things jangly lofi and twee happening.

The Fade Away Radiate team’s picks of the year are a clear, varying representation of these different influences present in indie-music today, since our taste and specialities sometimes overlap but are in different corners at the same time…. Happy Xmas and Merry NewYear! Lots of great releases expected next year! Thanks for following, reading and supporting. Much Love!
